Liverpool’s dance company Movema will start their popular Carnival Dance classes on Wednesday, 20th May 2015. Classes will teach everyone fun and exciting moves from Brazil and the Caribbean with a showcase performance at the annual Brouhaha International Carnival on 11th July 2015.

Maria, co-director of Movema says: “Movema have been bringing dance enthusiasts of all backgrounds to perform in Carnival since 2008. We’re really excited this year to be dancing to amazing new rhythms this year including Maracatu and some totally new surprises!”

Movema will have live drumming band Katumba joining them for the last three dance classes and with whom the Movema participants will be parading in the carnival. Katumba, formerly known as Batala Liverpool, long-time collaborators with Movema, have been rocking the city for over 10 years and are now reforming into Liverpool’s largest, loudest and most vibrant drum ensemble Katumba Bloco!

“It’s always exciting to be working with Movema and seeing people from any cultural background having a great time dancing to our carnival rhythms”, says Ritchie, Katumba bandleader.
